So in this episode we get introduced to both Hush and Black Mask. Similar to how Hush is done in the comics he is around the same age as Bruce, but we see in this version that he bullies Bruce and they get into a fight. In the comics they’re friends, now this is the first time we see Hush so they may become friends as the series goes on.
With Black Mask they show him as a business man who hires people by having them fight to the death, and who ever wins gets the job. In the episode he wears a black Japanese mask. Foreshadowing what he will become one day. I was excited when I saw the title to this episode because I’ve been wanting to see a live-action version of Black Mask. So far this show has picked up when it comes to villains origins.
The Penguin is getting stronger and stronger, you can see his power in the crime world getting bigger. Fish Mooney really wants to take down Falcone but we don’t really know why. She got some paper that she said could unravel Falcone’s whole operation. However I think Falcone knows that Fish is up to and now that one of her henchmen told Penguin that there’s someone close to Falcone that is working for Fish Mooney.
Barbara is just like Iris on The Flash series, she’s so underwritten and serves no purpose then to be a love interest to out main character.
We get to see Catwoman again, I really hope they explore her character out more. She the only classic Bat Man villain that has no been really explored a lot.
I just can’t wait to see Scarecrow and Hugo Strange!
